Football Insider report that Mauricio Pochettino has opened the door to Trevoh Chalobah’s Chelsea exit, and despite their bitter rivalry a deal could benefit both Spurs and the Blues.
Football Insider recently revealed that the same three centre-backs that were on Tottenham’s shortlist in the summer, remain the North London club’s top targets ahead of the January transfer window.
Over the last couple of weeks, multiple outlets have reported that signing a centre-back is one of Ange Postecoglou’s top priorities in January.
Last week, 90 min also backed up Tottenham’s interest in Kelly and Chalobah and asserted that Tosin Adarabioyo and Uruguayan sensation Sebastian Caceres are also on the club’s radar.
Tottenham are still looking at Trevoh Chalobah
However, Football Insider have now claimed that Postecoglou’s men are still looking at the same three centre-backs they did in the summer, which includes Adarabioyo and Kelly.
The report adds that the other player that Spurs are eyeing is Bayer Leverkusen’s Edmond Tapsoba, who was allegedly their number-one target before they signed Micky van de Ven.
The publication alleges that even though Tapsoba signed a new long-term contract at the Bay Arena in June, Tottenham have not given up hope of securing the Burkina Faso international’s services.

I do wonder if the injury to Van de Ven (which looks like a long-term one) would have an impact on which centre-back Spurs pursue in January.
The club might have perhaps been leaning towards signing a backup option like Adarabioyo but may now realise the importance of spending significantly on another relatively big name like Tapsoba or Guehi.
